Date night

06 Jun

Over the weekend we had our date night. He had just had his first therapy session in a while and I had just come home from work… And both of us were a little worse for wear from the night before. SO… We kept it casual and opted for a meal out.

We had 2 rules. The first being that we had to try something new – ie a different dish (i ALWAYS have pasta) and the second rule was that we had to pretend like it was a first date and we would both be ourselves ie getting to know each other again… But the real him… A do-over if you will. this meant he had to leave the house and come back to knock for me, I was actually nervous ha ha.

I couldn’t find my keys and made him wait in the hallway and then explained that I had gone for smart-casual as I had no idea where we were going. He asked about my day and likewise I asked him “oh you know just come back from therapy… I’m a little mentally unstable so… Is that a turn on?”

We made small talk on the way asking about home towns and interests and it was actually quite exciting… And really did feel like a date (ha ha says a lot about my thrilling lifestyle huh?)

We arrived at a restaurant which he had heard serves “exotic meat” (of course a few easy innuendos were made) and sure enough the chalk boards told us he had heard right.

We ordered “steak on a stone” a choice of unusual steak meats such as crocodile, ostrich…. to name a few. whichevwr you decide is presented raw on a slab which is heated to 300 degrees and it cooks itself in from of you – to your taste.
We were intrigued …we ordered the kangaroo and the Zebra… It was gorgeous!

I’m a bit confused as to where they get the meats from… And a bit reluctant to find out at the same time… I’d be willing to bet that its road kill … “Look honey I found a basger” … “Put it on the menu as zebra… Some mug will pay good money for that” *enter us*

Regardless it was really nice – the meat and the date in general. I’d like to say we both went home and had mad passionate sex all over the house … But we were both so shattered that we ended up cuddling up on the sofa with pjs on … Besides… I don’t do things like that on a first date 😉

    It is an unusual concept, to go on a date with your partner, and act like you are unaware of each others background. I am not sure if I could do it, so well done for giving it a go.
    I have had kangaroo before, and found it very chewy. Maybe it was just that restaurant though! Ostrich is good, and no cholesterol into the bargain!

      I preferred the kangaroo, ours was really tender while the zebra was tough and smelled funny lol (road kill) I had been the one to suggest it as a way to let him try out ‘being himself’ (his true self) and hopefully making it a ‘fun’ way of reintroducing himself to me but I don’t think he did really so yeah we were just a married couple acting like wallys in the end lol xB

    I always wanted to go to a restaurant like that. How did the zebra taste? I need to find one of those places around here.

    Sounds like you had a great ‘first date’.

        I want to try ostrich some day. Almost had ostrich skewers for the wedding, but it was out of season.

        I’ve had alligator when I lived in Florida. Wasn’t a fan.

    That’s a really nice idea, I’ll talk with the other person to see if he’s up for the challenge. Sounds a bit like role-play.
    I once was tempted to try kangaroo, a kangaroo kebab, but then I chickened out, felt sorry for the kangaroo, silly I know.

      yes role playing thats the phrase i was looking for 🙂 It WAS fun and like with role playing the idea was to make it fun whilst sneaking in our real selves. I thought i would chicken out too – especially bringing them out raw because even the thought of rare steak makes me cringe but then i figured i cook raw chicken and beef etc so i could do it. I didnt think about WHAT it was until afterwards (roadkill) xB
